I personally represent business owners and entrepreneurs in a variety of commercial disputes, shareholder and partnership disputes, contract disputes and commercial landlord-tenant matters. I provide large firm service in a small firm setting designed to realize your litigation goals.
I also handle trade secret and non-compete cases. Florida law protects trade secrets from unauthorized disclosure. The law defines a “trade secret” as information that derives independent economic value from not being generally known to other people and is the subject of efforts that are reasonable under the circumstances to maintain its secrecy.
A customer list is entitled to trade secret protection only if the list is the product of great expense or effort, is a distillation of a larger list or includes information not available from public sources.
If properly drafted, non-compete agreements are enforceable in Florida and a constant source of litigation between business rivals.
